I have visited Croma numerous times and every time it has been the same quality, and the same good price. It is the restaurants' consistency and versatility which are really the selling points, it suits just as well for a couple as a group of friends, service is decent and the wide range of pizza to choose from really is...

Always find we come back here for family celebrations. Mum's 60th and my son's 9th birthday were botg so enjoyable, due to the attentive staff, and the relaxed ambiance. We're going back to enjoy the Xmas menu soon.

I've been to Croma a few times and love the food. I've only ever had the goats cheese and onion salad because it is amazing. Obviously trying a pizza is a must however if I have one I wont have room for sticky toffee pudding which is AMAZING. Service was/is great as always and really good value for money. Given... More

Waiter came round promptly enough with the dessert menus and we all ordered puds and then coffees.. by then... More

Lunch time special price Pizza/pasta and drink 7.95. Courgette and goats cheese pizza superb. Pasta dish with mushroom and goats cheese wow. The menu is not massive but varied. Would be nice if they changed it every so often or had daily specials. Service good but sometimes you have to wave to attract their attention. Accessible toilet. On bus routes,bus... More

A pizza is a simple dish to prepare, surely? Dough balls even easier. Croma have demonstrated how not to serve both. Our dough balls were the worst we had ever tasted - dry, hard, more like wooden doorknobs. We suspected they had been made in advance and kept warm for a very long time. The pizzas - a fairly nice...

I've been to croma in chorlton a fair few times and have always loved going! Good tasty pizzas - thin base, generous toppings and excellent value for money. Tonight however I was disappointed. Staff weren't particularly friendly or attentive while we were there. The menu reads as it has over the years and it doesn't disappoint with a good variety... More

OK, I've been going to croma in chorlton for the best part of 10 years, and it will take more than one bad experience to put me off for good. But it really seems like its gone downhill. The pancetta on the 'cotto' pizza has changed from nice large slices to little off cuts / lardons. The vegetable pizza had... More

Visited Croma with a friend last night, menu consisted of mainly Pizza/Salads and limited pasta dishes. Waitress lovely could not be nicer, very attentive even though it was very busy. Ordered the King Prawns which were over cooked and rubbery, from then on it got worse. The Lasagne (do not like Pizza) was disgusting, Consisted mainly of lumpy béchamel sauce,... More
